    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


    The formation of biofilms on man-made surfaces is a common and problematic occurrence in the marine environment. In addition to man-made surfaces, biofilm formation can also appear on naturally occurring marine surfaces, such as sediment and rock substrates and plants. The commencement of a seagrass restoration project in South Australian waters has developed an approach to utilise natural hessian material to assist in seagrass recruitment.

    Conference13th Symposium on Aquatic Microbial Ecology
    Abbreviated titleSAME13
    OtherThis symposium will be organized in the tradition of the very successful SAME meetings, coupling the outstanding scientific level of lectures and communications to the unique convivial atmosphere of SAME. We have not defined one conference theme, in order to enlarge as much as possible the coverage of the different advances in aquatic microbial ecology achieved in the last years, as well as the most exotic perspectives.
